The deformity is unsightly, and although function is not greatly impaired, the child’s parents often request an operation to improve the appearance of the elbow. Dome osteotomy was developed by professor Tien, and was indicated for management of cubitus varus, cubitus valgus, and elbow hyperextension deformity. The dome osteotomy not only improve the outcome of humerus correction surgery and reduce the complication. We successfully improved the cosmetic and functional outcome of more than 50 children with elbow deformities. There was no nerve injury, recurrent or residual deformity after surgery.
